Here it is February already – more than a month into the new year. Time goes by so quickly. I made lots of images last month and finally got around to editing them.

We continue to get lots of snow and it is deep and perfect for winter activities. Ken’s brother stayed for a few days and tried his AT gear and his snowboard on the hill above us. It really made me want to get some back country skis.

Some days have had snow falling all day long and others have been brilliantly sunny. The frost and icicles have been amazing. Of course, we’ve had our share of shoveling. A friend gifted us his used snowblower and it was just in time. We were nearly overwhelmed with the amount of work. And then we had to have a big front loader come in and move the big berms left by the plow guy.

Here is a sampling of images from around our hillside.


  1. Spectacular winter! Thanks for sharing- it gladdens my heart while I sit inside preparing lectures (which is also rewarding, but ….. more indoor-outdoor balance would be nice.

    • It makes me feel good that my images gladden your heart Anna. Yes, we all need to remember the indoor-outdoor balance. Thank you.

  2. Those icicles wouldn’t last around me; I like to break them off and suck on them like a popsicle! Lovely photos of the trees and snow, and the mountains too.

    • We used to just break them off and Ken liked them with whiskey but now they just grow and melt and evolve like part of our natural habitat.
